To be read with my next bottle of Tarasque.



(Tarasque was the name of the dragon tamed by St Martha, in case you're not up your hagiographic trivia. Heathen.)

Warning: this review contains bad puns.

I don't make a habit (agh) of reading short story collections; generally I just find them a bit hit & miss. I was interested in this one in particular however, as it is pretty much Fox Spirit Books's Mission (arf) statement - and I have chatted to several of the Skulk on a semi-regular basis. (Confession (hah) time: Indeed, I am one of the Skulk, now... disclosure indeed...)

It's not a convent-ional (sic) anthology: every tale is themed around the Nun an
